    Did I mention that the $50 included a Thomas Super Safelight, in perfect working order?

    $50, wow great price!



    Anyone know wich size filters this beast eats?

    The ProLab is a very nice enlarger and I have printed with several 135's using 4x5 negs with no noticeable differences in coverage. Should do you just fine. As for the Thomas Duplex safelight you won't go wrong even when it comes time to replace the sodium vapor tube. They go for about $70 new but they last a long time. I have 5 of them in daily use all day long in my High School labs and the first one went out after about 7 years.(8 hrs. x 180 day school year average x 7 yrs = 10,080 hrs of use) Turning them on and off several times a day shorthens the life of the tube. You are better off leaving it on all day long and shutting them down after your printing session for the day is over.

    The enlarger is on my living room table now, going to move it to the darkroom tomorrow
    It came with all Componon-S lenses, a 50mm f/2.8, 100mm f/5.6 and the 135mm.
    And a bunch of negative carriers.
    8x11, 35mm, 6x6, 5.5x6.5, 4x5" and 6x7.
